Archibald Win for Seidler

 

A big congratulations from Sydney Living Museums to Penelope Seidler AM – such an inspiring individual, architect and generous patron to arts and heritage in Australia - following the news that the portrait of her by Fiona Lowry has won this year's Archibald Prize. 

We are proud to present the most comprehensive exhibition ever staged in Sydney celebrating the life and work of Harry Seidler later this year.

The exhibition explores the architect’s acclaimed designs and the long-lasting collaborations he forged with leading architects, artists and engineers, including Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Oscar Niemeyer, Max Dupain, Josef Albers, Alexander Calder, Sol LeWitt and Lin Utzon.  

Join us from 1 November at the Museum of Sydney for the exhibition.
